KAPI0LAN1 PARK RACES.
There has been considerable dis-
1 mission, during the past few days, in
racing circles, about the proposed
charge of ten dollars to be levied
upon every horse that uses the Ka-
piolani Park course as a training
ground for the forthcoming annual
races. Some of the owners of horses
hold that no shell charge should he
made ; that it is not customary else-
'where and that it is a heavy tax.
Kapiolani Park is in, we believe,
the hands of the Kapiolani Park As
sociation, for a term of years. The
trustees of the association have care
fully considered all the circumstances
of the case and have decided to
make the charge above mentioned,
for the following reasons :
Each gentleman who is training a
horse, and pays the ten dollars, will
have a key admitting him to the
track, so that he may go there when
he pleases and remain unmolested.
This will prevent the nuisance that
occurred last year when the racing
track was invaded by many non
trainers,, who often congregated there
at night and on Sundays, when they
indulged in races on their own ac
count, much to the annoyance of
residents in the neighborhood and
those who indulged in the luxury of
a weekly drive to Waikiki.
The trustees of the Kapiolani Park
Association propose to utilize the
money, received from the training
fees, for the sole purpose of keeping
tltc track in good order and repair,
and the few hundred dollars, so re
ceived, will not go far towards ac
complishing that purpose. Should
there be any surplus, it will be
utilized to increase tho prizes offered
for the various events. The damage
that has been done, to the young
growing trees at the park, was by
no means inconsiderable in years
Apast, and it is hoped that it; will be
diminished by keeping the track clear j
until tho actunl day of the races.
Mr. W. G, Irwin and Mr. Ilonry
Maofarlano have been chiefly blamed
for proposing tho payment of this ice.
Those who blame them should remem
ber that these two gentlemen arc
always among the first and mostliheral
contributors to any fund that will
assist in providing good amusements
and entertainments for the commu
nity. Tt is not likely therefore that
they would have made, this proposi
tion unless they thought it would bo
an advantage to trainees, and ulti
mately to the whole community,
through preserving the Park. If a
man should possess one or more
horses, which he thinks arc good
enough to win money for him, he
should not begrudge the ten dollar
payment which will assist him to
.quietly and uninterruptedly endeavor
to attain his object. The contribu
tions of the public, on a race daj,
arc not, in this limited community,
sufficiently large to bear all the ex
penses, and trainers and owners
should remember that here there has
been, hitherto, no private jockey
club, with its own course and sta
bles, to the establishment of which
they have been regularly called upon

The rowing uniform of the Hono
lulu Yacht and Boat Club is a blue
skull cap with white diamond on top,

white flannel pants with blue belt,
white canvas "tennis" shoes. The
commodore's device is II. Y. B. C,

an anchor; the vice-commodore is
to wear the same in blue ; the cap
tain's is the" same as the vice-commodore's
surmounted by two oars
ciossed, instead of an anchor. The
distinguishing signal of the club is
to be a blue pointed burgee with
white diamond in the center. The
commodore's flag is to be broad red

white. The vice-commodore's Avill
be the same, in blue; the captain
will fly a plain blue pennant. All

Editor Bulixtin : Your con
temporary, the Saturday Press, has
an article headed " Our Country
Schools." I have no wish to deny
that the article contafhs some true
statements and offers some sensible
suggestions ; but, if I do not mistake
its meaning, one small portion of it
is decidedly incorrect. It is said,
"a generation of Ilawaiians is about
assuming the prerogatives of citizen
ship, over fifty per cent, of whom
have no real knowledge of their own
written language." I may be under
a misapprehension as to the meaning
intended to attach to "real knowl
edge." In the sense of being
thorough and complete, an extremely
limited number of Ilawaiians, at any
time, have had a "real knowledge
of their own written language." The
same is also true of every nation and
country under the sun. In the most
schooled and best educated of any
country, only a few acquire a " real
knowledge" of the language of that
country, in the sense just now indi
cated. Comparatively seldom does
an American or an English lad
complete his Grammar School
course, or a young man graduate at
Collego, with a "renl
of his mother tongue. But
pose the Saturday Press
simply to mean a sufficient acquaint
WMVfcxmiiiiiiinimtawni'ininnii;' n mt tiiimtmmMmtmia0uutnmrtnimouMmfirT'rt irnr""Trn'iTriTiwtiTi
anco with the Hawaiian language to
read, write nnd speak it accurately
similar to the knowledge of English
possessed by an Englishman or an
American who has had what is pop
ularly understood by an ordinary
education. If this is what is meant,
I believe tho Press to be mistaken.
Of the "generation of Ilawaiians
about assuming the prerogatives of
citizenship," considerably over fifty
per cent. probably more than seventy-five
per cent. arc well enough
versed in their ow,n language to
speak and write it more correctly
and readily than the average boy, of
the same age, of most other coun
tries. To some this assertion may
seem incredible. Nevertheless, it is
made on the authority of persons
long resident in the country and
thoroughly acquainted with the
natives and their language. It
would be an exceedingly difficult,
if not an impossible, task to find a
native Hawaiian, between the ages
of ten and thirty years, who cannot
read and write his own language.
After several years experience with
the natives, my duties bringing me
into close contact with them, I have
not yet known a solitary case. J do
not mean to imply that Ilawaiians
cannot be more fully instructed in
their own written language, or that
improvement in that direction is un
necessary ; but simply this, that the
"generation of Ilawaiians about as
suming the prerogatives of citizen
ship" arc not so deficient in know
ledge of their own writtcu language
as some people suppose.
